Ordered some Nike Lunar Force 1 Duckboot Lows in black for work and those new black UB's on addidas site. Can't stop this shoe train shiiiiit.
They have a winterized version for Canada but it's shit for snow and ice.

Can't call something winterized by adding some nubs on a basketball sole.

Just when I thought I was done with ATRs and about to wait for Ultra Boost 4.0s, I hear that these days are set to drop tomorrow on adidas.ca:
The black pair are the ones I grabbed they look nice. Good with UBs for now,would like to try some 93/17's next.

Does anyone know what the current nike equivalent of the Nike Lunar Trainer 1 is (or if there is one)? Bought a pair in 2015 and they were super good, but I can't see a Nike Lunar Trainer 2 or 3 or whatever in the nike store.

Releasing in a couple of days. I know its not a Prime or Pixelknit, but this Mesh actually feels really good. Its not mesh like a traditional Nike runner, or a team jersey. Kind of hard to explain this how this knitted mesh feels like. its thick too.

Regardless im not buying it at retail, will wait for a 25 or 30% off sale first, since its a summer color anyways. but i have been waiting a while. Love cream colors.

The colorways are just bad. Not sure why they don't have amazing designs. They have already shown they can colorize each individual air bag and even within each air bag

I still salty that the rainbow sole is paired with the most ugly looking upper ever.

Just give it to me with a white or off-white upper. Or any pastel shade really.

Vapomax are fucking hot. However i cant buy anymore. Dont wanna be spending $200 on sneakers, when i havent even worn the one i bought already. But there are so many good ones releasing soon, also alot of bad ones releasing. In all, there are too many releasing.

Anyways, i finally got the chance to strut around in my newly bought EQT Support Ultras (aka 93/16s with Boost) today. And they got straight up slept on. Kind of glad since i was able to pick it up sooo cheap for $68. If you are into that New Balance vibe, this is the shoe for you, with the comfort of a UB sole.

Wait, so whats the word on the Off-White x Nike relases? I've seen people on facebook groups selling a pair here and there. Obviously for mad prices, but how did they get them? Did they jst get an early pair or did I miss a release or something?

I just saw a guy running in them today and he looked like he was gonna slip off the air bubble midsole. And maybe this was just his foot or poor sizing, but I also noticed how his foot kept sliding in the Flyknit upper. What a bloody shame too since the Vapormax's Flyknit upper is by far one of the best looking uppers ever. Btw, Boost has ruined the Nike shoes I bought, now I expect that level of responsiveness I get from the ATRs in all shoes.

Loving the new Adidas X AWangnew colllab. The skate shoes from the last drop is still one of my favorites from the collection. Dunno if I like the miss version for this drop but I'm pretty interested in these.

Well Despite what they say Vapormax, are a lifestyle shoe. Im sure you can run in them just fine though, and i suspect the guy got a size too big. For that shoe you really need to get sizing on point imo. And yea the upper is really good looking.

On the subject of boost, i got my first pair 2.5 months ago, now i have a total of 5 pairs of boost since. Probably picking up 2 more before the end of the year.

Speaking about Wang.

What about the Hikes? Seems like they dropped and everyone forgot about it. Was it that limited?

Damn. May have to re-think wearing them to work then lol.

I am really getting the itch to buy new shoes, though. It's been a while. I still love boost, but Adidas has been really uninteresting to me lately (too many weird R2 colors, mesh EQT's, etc.) and I'm not really into bball shoes anymore.

Yea, and as much as i love the shoe it is very niche. Works best outside on cement like large city streets or carpet. Should be fine for running and jogging as long as you don't pivot too much.

it is surprising comfy though. Different than UB comfy, but bouncy like a bouncy ball.

Damn the spiderman vapormax released in japan, found a site where i could buy them for 300 euros, plus probably customs fee. Thats stupid money for a GR colorway, but the longer there is no release date the stupider i become

You won’t have any issues getting them. Just wait.
